A Leafy Hello

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today and I have fallen in love with the leaf stamps from Rubber Dance.  This set - NP1-M: I Love Leaves - has a variety of leaves in all shapes and sizes. 

You can easily cut apart the stamps and use them independently, but I opted to keep the sheet of rubber whole and use it as a background stamp.  I wanted to stay with a fall theme, so I used greens and browns.  After inking the stamp with assorted colors of Clearsnap chalk ink, I stamped a panel of white cardstock. 

After inking the edges of the panel with brown ink, I matted it with 2 colors of brown cardstock, then  wrapped some coordinating ribbon around the panel before adding it to the green card.

Several leaves were fussy cut and scrunched to give them a more realistic look.  They were added to the card with foam adhesives under the ribbon.    The sentiment (JNEN-2E: Just a note) was tied to the ribbon with some twine.

To see more of the stamps available, visit the Rubber Dance store.
